There has been no overall change in the oral health of adults aged 65 years and older from 1995 to 2006. However, approximately 75 percent of the elderly in California were missing one or more teeth due to disease in 2006. Californians who are older, black, less educated, have low family income, and are current or former smokers are more likely to be missing teeth.
